Bottle. The pour is a very dark brown with a lingering head. The aroma is all porter, not much else. The taste is has the taste of peppers as soon as you take a drink. Lingers throughout, but not overly hot just a good spice. Quality beer and nailed what they were trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle] shared by Armin. Thanks! Pours tarry black with a large head of big bubbles. Aroma is smoky, moderately roasty and ashy, and the pepper is in the background. Flavor is nicely roasty, perfect amount of pepper spiciness hiding behind the smoke. Finish is a nice lingering heat and roast.

rangerred (891) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN. Arrives almost pitch black with a thick dark tan head. Really good lacing and head retention. Coffee and dark chocolate are most evident in the aroma. There are some spices there too. The flavor is all dark chocolate and coffee up front with some peppery spice in the background. Pepper becomes more apparent towards the middle and finish as a moderate warmth builds in the back of the throat. Some smoke is there too. Overall this is an awesome beer. I don’t think I have had a chili beer before that was this nicely balanced. The warmth is just right and the chili flavor doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the beer. Really glad I got to try this one.

750 from Greens. Beautiful black pour with a thick dark brown head. Decent lacing and retention. Aroma was creamy milk chocolate, smoke and a decent chipotle presence. Flavors were super smoky, light cocoa with a long lingering peppery finish. Light heat. Creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation. A nicely done chipotle brew.

Shared this bottle with people in line at the CBS release. Poured from a 750ml into my Deschutes snifter. A: Pours a dark brown with a nice khaki head and leaves a webbed lace down the glass. S: Smells of green peppers, a little chocolate and a little malt bill. The pepper is dominated which I expected. T: The taste blows the smell out of the water. A great smokiness is present first and foremost. The spice from the chipotle gives it a great kick and there is a green paper freshness that is great. There is a slight sweet chocolate on the backend that really rounds it out. M: Refreshing and spicy, medium bodied with a nice carbonation. O: The nose wasn’t too inviting but the taste more than made up for it. Very well balanced. The best pepper beer out there. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-02-2011

Tejas (864) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2010
My bottle said Chipotle Porter. OK, but not great. Some hints of heat but really no chile flavor. Didn’t get much Porter roastiness either. Maybe these chile beers aren’t for me despite growing up on the things here in Tejas. I didn’t care for Rogue’s either.

Backlog. Not a fan of the spice beers and even less of a fan for chili-infused ales. Probably not Mikkels fault.

espenra (860) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2011
75cl bottle. Shared with 3 friends. It poured a pitch black colour with a small brown foamy head. Aroma is sharp and smokey with notes of chilli and onions. Some malt. Flavour is also smokey with notes of roasted malts, charcoal and some dark chocolate. The chilli becomes more noticable in the back of the mouth and especially in the throat. A short aftertaste except for the chilli in the throat.

Bottle from some where in NoVa - pours cola with big chocolate head some . Aroma is smokey with the hint of jalapeño. Taste is smokey with the warmth of the jalapeño as you drink it down. Nice, but the spice is pretty subtle..

A- Body is a dark brown, nearly black hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy tan head which has good retention and plenty of lacing is left behind in the glass. S- Smell is big and asky-lots of chipolte, smoke, and roasted malt. T- Flavor is full of chipolte-as it is the highlight of this brew- behind this is mild to moderate smoke and roasted malt. The chipolte intensifies for the finish and lingers on and on for a long time with an ominous spicy heat. M- Carbonation is high and tingly. Body is medium weight and chalky. D- This is a great beer overall-if you like a spicy brew- if you don’t you will hate this beer. Its not very complex overall but the smoke adds an interesting component to the spicy porter. The spiciness is big and the highlight. I like that the ABV is reasonable and it offers so much flavor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-29-2010 14:26:51
